Eye: Light amber color. 

Nose: Floral notes of jasmine, medlar flowers. Fruity notes of figs, prunes, creme brulee and candied orange. Spice of oak and toasted brioche. 

Palate: Generous and oaky, mellow refined and elegant. A long, rich finish like a good Fine Champagne should have.

Description

A Fine Champagne Extra Old Cognac

Behold, a stunning example of a Fine Champagne Cognac from the Boinaud Estate. The De Luze XO Cognac is a testament to their Cognac house, and features as a part of a collection of Cognacs that underwent a major redesign in 2011.

As an Extra Old Cognac, it is around 20 years in age, and the oldest eaux-de-vie comes from the harvest of 1980 from the family estate. This sublime Cognac was designed to encapsulate the spirit of the De Luze maison, and does everything that a good Fine Champagne Cognac should; the roundness on the palate, followed by the exceptionally long finish that never fails to impress.

The Extra Old De Luze has caught the attention of many spirit critics worldwide, and for that reason is a multi-award winner. With a floral character that is bold and intense, you are sure to enjoy this Cognac from the largest family-run estate in the Premier Cru, the Grande Champagne.

The De Luze Cognac house has undergone some serious modernization in recent years. They are now headed by young and dynamic Cognac producers such as Remi Boinaud, who represents the 24th generation of Cognac makers. Dating back over 200 years, they are a testament to the art of Cognac production in the Grande Champagne region. Take a closer look at their Cognac house here, or take a look at the time that we went on a tour around the Boinaud estate.

How to enjoy the De Luze XO Fine Cognac

The De Luze XO is best on ice. The De Luze Cognac decanter is a beauty in itself, and sets the tone for the fine nectar within. A voluptuous decanter, it comes in a 70cl glass carafe with a stylishly engraved crest on the lid.

Best Yet

I’m relatively new to Cognac, but this is among my favorites. Subtle hints of fruit on the nose and palate. Very smooth with a long, wonderful finish. Still yet to try it on ice!

De Live XO Fine Cognac - Sublime

Rich orange citrus i erodes, mild sweetness then a hit of the orange warms across the tongue and mouth, finishing on long mild wood and plum tastes.. A wonderful Cognac that in my opinion beats my bold favourite Hennessy XO.. yes I have said it and now put into print .. I prefer the flavours and aromas of the De Luze XO.. I was GENUINELY shocked at this..
Try and enjoy it, completely !

Impressed

I don’t know what’s going on, but I liked this more than I like Rémy XO and Hennessy XO. The finish is incredibly long! Excellent Cognac!

Fine Champagne at its best

I asked for a Fine Champagne recommendation and I ordered this Deluze XO, i don't regret it. I will order another one for sure.. if you love full bodied cognac that is comparable to remy xo (because it is also fine champagne) go for deluze!
